Camaro Focus Group members - aka "the 12 disciples of which there are 15" ;)

In regards to focus group information that has popped up recently, I've decided to make a thread where all the members of the focus group can post up and introduce themselves - if they choose to.

So I will make my best effort to get all 15 to stop by and say hi. :)

Here is our group picture from May 2007:



Standing are the 15 focus group members.

Kneeling in the front row (from L-R) are:
John Fitzpatrick - Camaro Marketing Manager
Scott Settlemire - The F-Bodfather
Tom Peters - Camaro Design Chief
Cheryl Pilcher - Camaro Product Manager

....and I'll let the cast introduce and locate themselves as they stop in. :)

I'm 4th from the left. :)

...back row, ...standing next to the bald guy :D
I'm one of the 1st gen fans in the crowd. Along with my '02 SS vert I still keep a few '67's and '68's in the garage.
Once again having the opportunity to drive my '67. Copilot, ...none other, than chief designer, ...Tom Peters.

Maggie here, in the group photo I am in the middle row, second from the left behind John F. The only one in the focus group who did not get the memo it was ok to bring a camera to the proving grounds :BangHead: I won't make that mistake again. Great to be on line with all of you again, I sure do miss the GM Insiders. Looking forward to seeing all of you again soon.

In addition to my own, whose soul must I steal and sell to be part of your group?

Seriously, how were you selected? Very cool and I hope you all have a great time at the next meeting!

Did I mention: "How were you selected?"

Borrowing words from Elie, here's how we were selected:

At one point there was a website, "gminsiders.com" (not around any longer) and at the time, members of the site were invited to write a 250 word essay on why they would make a good Camaro Enthusiast Focus Group member.

12 were chosen + 3 alternates. I guess since there was no way that any of the original 12 were gonna fall by the wayside, GM (perhaps with a little gentle persuasion from somebody) decided not to keep anybody in suspense and the original 12 shortly became 15!

Great cross-section of enthusiasts, BTW, in terms of age, focus, backgrounds etc.!!
